Evolution of a journal page!

I don't know why, but I really had a ton of fun playing with this spread today and I really wanted to share!! (Those of you who aren't IRL friends, be grateful - I text Kelly millions of pictures when I get excited like today!)

First I was watching a YouTube video and the chick was working on this canvas with some book text and paint on it and she drew a little lady on there and I thought "That's cute. I could draw a little me for my journal." But the first thing that came out was this:
TOTALLY not me!!

So I tried again:
That one is MUCH more me!

But I had so much fun gluing down the first one, I couldn't help it - I used the other one, too!
I added some PanPastel - a little green on green. Then I cut a border out of a brown paper lunch bag, and used a toilet paper tube to add some green circles. I was on green overload.
A little bubble wrap action with yet another green:
A little brick wall action, and a few skulls:
And then it was ready for some journaling!! I can't even tell you how much fun this was to do.
